Introduction: Constellation Organizers
Make these cardboard constellation organizers from shipping boxes
Step 1: Watch the Video Tutorial Here!
Step 2: You'll Need
Print out of constellations (Print this in gray scale to save ink)
Americana Multi Surface Satin Paint in Black Tie
Priority shipping boxes from the post office (or recycled)
Krylon Short Cuts in Silver or Gold metallic
Step 3: Assemble the Box
Assemble the box
Draw a line from corner to corner with a pencil
Intersect the line 3 1/2" up from the base of the box on each side
Draw a curve where the lines intersect on each side
Repeat on the other side
Connect the 3 1/2" lines on the sides of the box
Step 4: Cut and Glue the Box
Cut along the lines with a craft knife
*This will give you two organizers
Cut an extra piece of cardboard 3 1/2" by the width of your box plus 3"
Score 1 1/2" in on each side and bend to create flaps
Glue the flaps to the inside of the mouth of the box to create an area for pencils
Step 5: Paint and Embellish
Paint the entire box with Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paint in Black Tie
When dry, lightly draw your constellations in pencil
Mark over the lines with a silver Krylon Short Cuts metallic paint marker
Connect the lines with stick-on rhinestones
Step 6: Add the Starry Night
Make hundreds of dots with the metallic paint pen to create the night sky
